Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
The evening primroses are a group of yellow-flowered plants that range from short “sundrops” to the tall ones like this species. Unlike the roadside weed, Oenothera biennis, O. lamarckiana makes a good meadow plant. Flowers open in the afternoon and are closed by morning. See related species—the ground-hugging, very large-flowered Missouri Primrose, O. missouriensis and the famous pink-flowered Showy Evening Primrose, O. speciosa.

      Comments about American Meadows Evening Primrose Seeds:

      Planted seeds 2 years ago along our pond embankment and in a wilflower bed near our patio with great success. Plants continue to reseed themselves to the delight of our grandchildren who enjoy watching the blossoms open as the late afternoon sun melds to twilight. Would make an excellent plant for patio containers as well.
